BA (Hons) Business Studies is our longest running course. The aim of this course is to enable you to undertake independent research of legal sources, and having identified the relevant law, apply it to a problem situation.
It is necessary for non-lawyers to appreciate the extent to which they can deal with a legal problem and, when it is appropriate, to refer the matter to a law professional. There are many areas in which non-lawyers with knowledge of fundamental legal principles and rules can work effectively in an organisation.
The study of law promotes analytical skills, problem-solving ability and an appreciation of complex documentation. It also provides the ability to summarise documents and provide concise statements, a particularly useful skill in drafting executive summaries. You will build up a range of communication skills - verbal, written and electronic - which can be utilised through, for example, negotiation, assessing the weight of arguments, writing and drafting.
